Let’s Hold Hands and Talk About the True Detective Finale

Enigmatic mumbling.

We need a True Detective finale discussion post if only so I can find a support group in the comments. What did you think?! Too conclusive, not conclusive enough? Did they ever address their woman problem? What will happen in season two? Who was the real villain: a sinister cabal of abusers and murderers, or HBO Go?

My take: I live in San Francisco, and there was an earthquake exactly halfway through my viewing of the episode, so if Nic Pizzolatto failed to achieve the right amount of foreboding and atmospheric dread, Mother Nature filled that right in.
